With the tragic passing of 27-year-old Daley Mathison during the RST Superbike Race on Monday, a GoFundMe page has been set up to help support his wife and young child

A GoFundMe page has been set up to help support the family of the late Isle of Man TT racer Daley Mathison, following a tragic accident at the start of the week.  

The 27-year-old from Stockton-on-Tees suffered a fatal accident on the third lap of Mondays RST Superbike Race.

The charismatic and talented young rider had a bright future ahead of him, and his death comes as a massive shock to the racing community, with Carl Fogarty, John McGuiness, and Peter Hickman all giving touching tributes to the fallen rider.

The GoFundMe was set up by Simon Bond to help support Mathison’s widow, Natalie, and their young daughter Daisy - With the aim of raising £20,000.

Already the page has raised nearly £14,000 at the time of writing, showing just how much the motorcycling community comes together to support one of their own.

Tributes

Peter Hickman, who won the Superbike race as a result of the crash, said: “Mixed emotions from today. Bikes and team been great as always. Happy but sad. RIP Daley, you will be missed. Thoughts with Natalie, Daisy and your whole family.”

Twenty-three-time TT winner McGuinness added: “Couldn’t find the words, but sat at table 19 the number of this lads last race. Talented, stylish, coming good, loving life, racing, being a dad. RIP @DaleyMathison you will be sadly missed.”

And perhaps one of the most touching tributes came from Steve Mercer, as he revealed how Mathison saved his life when he was struck by a TT course car last year:  

“I didn’t really know how to write it and also didn’t want to talk about myself when it should all be about Daley and his family right now,” Mercer said replying to a message about his accident from fellow racer Martin Jessopp.

“He massively helped save my life. He was first over the fence and undone my helmet strap as it was strangling me and also helped stop me bleeding to death as when the car hit me it pretty well took my leg off. I’ll be forever grateful for what he done. Thank you Daley. RIP.”
